Helmet Padding?


Recommended Posts

I use a thin piece of foam inside the top, maple leaf like original helmets, than a small block of foam each side of the head to stop any wobbling. The side foam has some Velcro glued on so I can remove and wash and the top piece is held in by the side foam. It's a basic setup but does me just fine.

I see others buying generic black foam pad kits which normally come with Velcro so you place them anywhere.

Correct, I tried one once and it felt really uncomfortable on the neck because of the angle of the mounted straps.

 

Here is a better image

I use those pads that Glen just posted. Just around the sides of helmet not the top.

 

Good call on that, David, I do the same thing.  Many troopers add the padding in the top but find that it causes the helmet to sit way too high, giving them a "bobble-head" appearance and making it really difficult to see.. (our field of vision when wearing a bucket is not that good to begin with).  It works for some, but not for others, so best to do a test run before permanently attaching it.
